Our Review: We take pride in trying new coffees from less well known countries here at The Captain's Coffee. While unusual doesn't always mean good, in this case, we are pleased to announce that it does! This organic offering comes to us from Soprocopiv co-op in the North Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The Soprocopiv co-op was created in 2004 by a group of farmers who sought to improve their lives, specifically improve their education and healthcare, through the production of high grade specialty coffee. They focus on organic and sustainable growing methods and high quality processing in order to bring a premium coffee to market. The members have the benefit of sustainable income so they can improve not only the quality of their lives but it also gives them the ability to reinvest in their growing and processing techniques to constantly improve the quality of their coffee. 

So how's it taste?! While an African coffee, sometimes we almost felt like we were drinking an Indonesian coffee while cupping. A GOOD Indonesian coffee. It's got a dark chocolate and earth aroma, tons of rich, almost syrupy body and a long lingering finish. We certainly wouldn't call this coffee crisp, more sweet than bright. We found notes of dark chocolate, mandarin orange and cherry in the cup with a carmelly sweetness to finish it off. Fans of Indonesian, African and just unusual coffees will enjoy this delicious treat!
